Is there such a thing as a Wireless RAID?

Asked by cookieman (35603points) July 6th, 2008

I would love to set up a redundant backup system at work, but wirelessly to a remote location. This way if the building burns down, I have an automatic backup elsewhere. Does this exist somehow?

I think it would depend on how much data you need backed up, for just your work files there are several online services, free and paid, that would fit the bill. If you were looking for backup for the entire business I would assume there is a company somewhere who does work like that.

If you are just looking to backup a few gigs of data then online would work well. Or you could do it the ghetto way and bring in a wired raid system once a month, backup, then take it home with you.

@cprevite What kind of connection do you have? And how big is the back up? There are actually a few ways you can do this, but it all depends on what it is. You could even make your own, with some help of a few free programs and a couple hours set up time.

Over the internet and wireless backup isn’t such a good choice when we’re talking more than a few gigs of data. If you’re looking to back up an entire business, if you’re talking a larger scale amount of data, the best way to go is to have a physical wired connection between your system and your backup, most likely with an ethernet gigabit connection.

If you want to go smaller and have a fast internet connection, there are many websites that provide an offsite backup service that you might want to look in to. One site suggested to me is Offsite-Backup (Australia). They have free one month trial if you’re interested.
